Statement from Lexi Tuddenham, Executive Director of The Healthy Environment Alliance of Utah (HEAL Utah), about the recent decision from the Salt Lake County Council regarding a proposed mine in Parleys Canyon. 

STATEMENT: APRIL 5, 2022

HEAL Utah supports the recent decision from The Salt Lake County Council to amend current ordinances halting further progress of the proposed Parleys Canyon Mine. This decision will prevent harmful air pollution from being emitted in our airshed due to mining and increased traffic operations. 

We thank Salt Lake County Council for putting the health of communities over profit and applaud the leadership of organizations like Save our Canyons and Save Parleys Canyon, who helped mobilize the community to protect our environment.  – Lexi Tuddenham, Executive Director of HEAL Utah
